RE: Re:Henry & Margaret Linn
No kin at all. I had posted some Linns in Weeks Cemetery. When I see any surnames I've worked on before I always write them down & see if they're connected. Always glad to help. I've been working on the photo request list but haven't whittled it down much.

Hi Brian,

I don't know where I got the date for the birth, but I would like to know where you got yours!! Perhaps I calculated it on the computer, but have discovered that the age entered in 3 different websites can yield 3 different answers. It has been a while since I read the graveyard, so I am open to suggestions. I just have had bad experiences with people insisting that they have better information, then discover mistakes that they also make in their searches. I can't really read the letters posted, so give me a heads-up of the details.

Didn't realize that we lived close. I'm north of Freeport, near Slate Lick. Used to go to 4-H meetings at the church there and always bought me feed at Bowser's. Just got back home from a lengthy stay in Presby for open heart surgery. Not really going to do research for a while. Just checking on my messages.

Thanks - Diane

I think there are pictures for all the Penningtons. It is a small cemetery, a nice cemetery. It is old too. I am not sure if there have been any recent burials.
I visited this cemetery when I was a teenager but was not interested in family history at the time. My grandmother's parent are buried there but I had no idea what cemetery it was when I was an adult and wanted to find it.
Best wishes with your journey to find your family. If you would like me to transfer some of your family to you, please use the edit key so I will transfer the correct memorial. I would be happy to transfer your family to you.

There are some Penningtons in Annisville (New Salem) Cemetery. Are they relatives?

Some people like the death certificates posted on the memorials; I personally prefer that the death certificates not be posted to my memorials.
I appreciate the info you sent me. I have many memorials and am in process of going through each cemetery and updating the memorials, however this will take time.
I deleted the memorials with the death certificates and started over so they are still on Find a Grave, just have different numbers. I wanted to let you know so you could still find them.
I requested a picture of the headstone of Thomas McKissick. One of my cousins has many pictures from this cemetery, I hope he has this one.
Again, thank you so much for the info, it really helps me.

Thank you for the recent updates for Naomi Hudson. I appreciate you posting the PA Certificate of Death as a source. If there are any memorials which I have created that you are related to, I will be glad to transfer them to you. Just let me know. Again, thank you. Susan
